Cliffs of Moher, Ireland

Cliffs of Moher, Ireland

During the summer, Andrea and I decided to book a Paddywagon tour around the Wild Atlantic Coast.

The view is just amazing. We had plenty of time to…

Movie Park Germany

During my birthday, I decided to visit a themepark in Germany, used to be known as Warner Bros Movie park, but recently changed their name to Movie Park Germany. Located close to the Dutch/German Border is a pretty large theme park, they recently opened a new Star Trek themed rollercoaster. It was not really busy and the waiting lines were not too long, the food itself is pretty expensive (what did you expect from a themepark). But the rides are…

Cork is a small city in the south of Ireland, some say it’s true Ireland, however I disagree with that. Cork is really famous for it’s English market.
